LISBON (PORTUGAL) – Out of the courthouse of the Portuguese capital, Fabrizio Corona – whose business concerns, especially, photographic services and gossip – lets off steam with the journalists.
«I am not a criminal, I have not escaped», said the Italian agent of photographers, underlining that – being innocent – he will continue his legal battle.
Corona gave himself up to the police, in Portugal, on last Wednesday. He had leaved some days ago, after having been sentenced – in Italy – to 7 years and 10 months of prison.
5 of these years come from the accusation of aggravated extorsion (and illicit treatment of personal data) to the detriment of the footballer David Trezeguet. About this, the Court of Cassation rejected the appeal by the lawyers of the photographers agent.
Corona will arrive at Milano Malpensa today in the afternoon.
